Tynecastle not fit for Europe
Hearts have been told definitively by Uefa that they will not be allowed to play European home games at Tynecastle in the coming season.

The Tynecastle pitch size does not meet new Uefa standards and the club have already begun talks geared towards moving to Murrayfield for all games.

Sections of the club's supporters have voiced displeasure with a permanent move away from Tynecastle.

Uefa stress that Hearts could continue to play domestic games at Tynecastle.

Hearts chief executive Chris Robinson has insisted that the lack of compliance with Uefa standards is a key reason behind the desire to sell Tynecastle and move to Murrayfield.
